Breckenridge Peak 6 Expansion Comment Period Open

The Peak 6 Expansion Comment Period is open and has been expanded to Aug. 9. The Draft Environmental Impact Statement and other information on the project to add a new lift to the top of Peak 6, immediately to the South of Breck Ski Area's current boundary are here.

Project Abstract
This Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) has been prepared to analyze and disclose the estimated environmental effects of implementation of the Breckenridge Ski Resort Peak 6 Project. Breckenridge Ski Resort is located on the White River National Forest in Summit County, CO and operates in accordance with the terms and conditions of a Special Use Permit, which is administered by the United States Forest Service. The proposed Peak 6 development encompasses approximately 550 acres of lift-served and hike-to skiing. The terrain would be accessed by a proposed six-person lift and by traversing from the existing Imperial Express to the north. In addition, two facilities would be constructed to accommodate guests—a top terminal ski patrol/warming hut and a 150-seat guest services facility at the proposed lift mid-station. The mid-station would serve as an additional lift loading point for skiers round-tripping the Peak 6 terrain. With the development of the proposed Peak 6 lift and associated terrain, the CCC at BSR would increase by 1,100 guests to 16,020 guests. A Forest Plan Amendment is proposed to amend the 2002 Forest Plan Standard “ALL S1.”

This Draft EIS discusses the purpose and need for the Proposed Action; alternatives to the Proposed Action; potential direct, indirect, and cumulative impacts of implementing each alternative; and project design criteria. Three alternatives are analyzed in detail in the Draft EIS: Alternative 1 (No Action); Alternative 2 (the Proposed Action); and Alternative 3.

Comments on this DEIS will be accepted for 45 days from publication of the Notice of Availability (NOA) in the Federal Register. The NOA provides the sole means of calculating the close of the DEIS comment period.

Nothing in the world is more yielding and gentle than water. Yet it has no equal for conquering the resistant and tough. The flexible can overcome the unbending; the soft can overcome the hard. - Lao Tse
